Foundation, Basement Nearly Complete At 64-Story 1 Southside Park, Vertical Construction Soon

The developer of Brickell’s massive 1 Southside Park has announced that the project will soon begin vertical construction.

JDS Development Group said in a press release that it had secured an acquisition and construction bridge loan of $86 million, allowing the development to move forward.

The project is now finishing up foundation work, “with deep soil mixing operations and the two-level basement complete,” the release said.

“We look forward to going vertical in the near future,” said Michael Stern, Founder and CEO of JDS.

According to the new release, 1 Southside Park will rise 64 stories and include:

  • 1,175 residential rental units
  • 190,000 square feet of office space
  • 200-key Treehouse Hotel
  • 10,000 square feet of retail
  • 1,400 parking spaces

SHoP Architects is designing the project, with hotel interior design by Rockwell Group, landscaping by James Corner Field Operations, and residential interiors by Krista Ninivaggi of Woods Baggot.

As part of the development, Southside Park is being rebuilt. A pedestrian paseo from SW 2 Avenue will also be built at the center of the building’s ground floor, framed by the new ground floor lobbies and café space.

I disagree. I think its ugly. It looks like a Lego building done with grey/white building blocks.

SHoP Architects does beautiful modern designs. So glad to see a different architecture firm involved in enhancing our skyline. Without mentioning the other, we all know who….

Looks more like different third-rate architectural firms designed each part of the building.

What are you talking about. There’s hardly any singe-family homes left in West Brickell. More like tear down the strip malls, fast food restaurants with drive-thrus, and 1960s and 1970s fleatrap apartment buildings.

This should make a dent in the rental supply demand imbalance here – the sheer scale is incredible.

It is a bit confusing…looking at the photos, it just looks like dirt, so how is the foundation + basement almost finished?

There is a fire station on the property. How is the building going to be erected without moving the station?

One tower goes up, houses the station allowing the old one to be demolished before building the other tower

Great building. They need to bury the lines on 2nd ave, it looks messy, backwards, dirty, ugly.

It was on hold while they secured the loan. Honestly, it hasn’t seen activity for a while and as I understand it won’t commence again till the end of the year.

I believe the developers meant that vertical construction won’t begin until the end of the year. Which means they’ll continue working on the foundation then the foundation pour in the meantime… hopefully lol
